Improving the health of European citizens and increasing the competitiveness and boosting the innovative capacity of European health-related industries and businesses, while addressing global health issues including emerging epidemics. Emphasis will be put on translational research (translation of basic discoveries in clinical applications including scientific validation of experimental results), the development and validation of new therapies, methods for health promotion and prevention including promotion of child health, healthy ageing, diagnostic tools and medical technologies, as well as sustainable and efficient healthcare systems.
This work programme 2010 is to be published in July 2009 for proposals to be selected in 2010. It aims to ensure continuity with the previous work programme and to develop new activities within the budgetary constraints. The estimated total budget allocation for work programme 2010 is EUR 638 238 951 drawing from the 2010 budget. Section II of this document describes the topics for which project proposals can be submitted; sections III and IV describe the modalities for implementation of the different calls and other actions. The estimated budget breakdown for work programme 2010 is provided in section V.
Clinical research will continue to be a main focus in many topics, both in area 'Biotechnology, generic tools and medical technologies for human health' and in area 'Translating research for human health'. In addition area 'Optimising the delivery of healthcare' supports the translation of clinical results into clinical practice. For clinical trials, EC contribution will be limited to phases I and II and only exceptionally to further studies. Projects conducting clinical research must take into account (in the research protocols, methodologies and analysis of results) possible differences in relation to gender and age.
